That is a pretty small concern for me i suppose, I could get used to it. I wasnt actually talking about the COG, I just meant It will impose a few more problems than my Lazer z as far as getting under trees and low hanging branches. I already get whacked in the head enough as it is. I cant wait to get one of these machines! GMLC, I would love to take you up on your offer to come and test out your mower. I could come down and mow a few of your lawns with you for free just to check it out and see how I like it. check out a few of your properties and see how it handles. This way you get some free labor in exchange for me testing out the mower lol I am thinking within a few weeks, I am pretty booked up for the next couple though.
